The Vintage Christmas Bazaar

Visited a local farm yesterday to buy a Christmas tree. For now we are storing it outside - waiting for Sunday when our daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter come over for lunch and we'll all decorate the tree and house together.

In the meantime this little pot grown spruce is providing some festive cheer to our living room. 
I plonked it inside the old galvanised wash-tub and trimmed it with some of my vintage glass baubles...



For now though I am having to concentrate on the upcoming Vintage Christmas Bazaar at Frome on Saturday.

I've made two more medium sized rag doll to take with me...This is Gertrude, dressed in vintage fabrics, antique lace and her WWII 'Gertie' sweetheart brooch. 

And this is Bethany...
Dressed in a rare antique French fabric.

I've made some more lavender-filled French linen hearts. Some with lace pockets to slip in a little treat for someone special (for now they have Victorian paper scraps slipped inside.)
And then there are some others with decorative lace fronts and glass buttons. 



Smaller hearts made from antique French quilt.

I've made two more fairy dolls...
To continue with the sweet/pudding theme...
There's Macaroon...


And Snickerdoodle.

Popping over using a link from Dians Timpanalley. I think your hearts from the French quilt are stunning, as are all of your other items.
